In 2016 we started our first-ever DBS School here in Samoa. Over the years this school has helped many YWAMers grow in their understanding of the Word and go deeper in their relationship with the Lord. Equipping them to be better leaders and believers wherever the Lord takes them.
One of the first things we learn in the DTS is the YWAM motto upon which the mission is founded: “To know God and to make Him known”. Yet one cannot possibly claim to know God if he/she does not even know His Word. So in the DBS we make the Bible the student’s companion for life! The student will discover the unified story of the Bible, be discipled by the Bible and will fall more in love with the Author.
In this 12-week (3 month) introduction to the Bible, the student will be given an overview of “God’s story” and will discover the purposes of God in it. The student will read the entire Bible, observe the chronology of biblical events, better understand each book in its historical context, understand the harmony between the books, be able to recognize the different genres of literature, and for each book, know why it was written and what the main idea is. The student will learn the foundational truths of Christianity by going directly to the source.
You will be able to share your faith more confidently with those who are seeking (evangelism) and explain the Word of God more accurately to those who’ve already come to faith (discipleship). The course is like a sequel to the DTS. Students continue the discipleship process begun in the DTS by addressing a variety of topics illuminated in the Scriptures, by building godly character and developing a lifelong hunger and love for the Word. This will not only be accomplished in the classrooms, but also outside the classroom, through one-on-ones, small groups, plus evangelism and mercy ministry in the community.
We would love to extend the invitation to anyone who would like to attend this secondary level school with us. It is an opportunity not to be missed!
